My Turn 

Congratulations, we've made it through another semester which means we're halfway finished. It may not seem like a 
big deal to some, but to others this is a huge step. 

Some of you came to Butler straight out of high school while others decided to take some time off. Occasionally, sai 
time off becomes a lot longer than people expect. I know this because I had taken a five year break and hadn't expected t 
make it to college. Apparently that changed and I am able to sit here and write about how scary coming back to school 
can be. 

Yes, I realize coming to college is scary for most people, but those of you who come straight out of high school have 
peers from the same school or at least people from the same age group to hang out with. Fortunately for me, I'm not quit 
out of this age group so it wasn't very hard to fit in. 

The people I want to bring recognition to are the older individuals, laid-off or not, who are coming to Butler to change 
careers. It was scary enough coming back after five years, let alone 25. 

So here's to you folks who are persevering and getting a new handle on life... Salute! 

About the Author - Matt Hahn is a 
Wichita sophomore who enjoys writing 
for the Grizzly Magazine as well as 
teaching Tae Kwon Do. Hahn hopes to 
pursue a degree at Wichita State 
University following his time at Butler. 

Blessed Be

A Clarification 

Shortly after our last issue, we were informed about an error in our astronomy article. 
We had said the beginning of the semester was the only time Mars would be visible. 

During about a three-week period Mars was closer than it had been in thousands of 
years. You would not have needed near the amount of magnification normally needed to see 
such detail. 

To the individual who caught this mistake... Thank you and keep reading.

Red, Yellow, Black and

love and hope worth it to me. 

Opinion an4 Photos 
By Carissa Shaffer 

I'm sure that many of 
you know the basics of what 
Jesus Christ did for us and 
what he's all about. He was 
sent to Earth by God to spread 
the word of the gospel and to 
do good and died for us on the 
cross for our sins so that we 
may have a better life in heav- 

So that's all there is to 
it right? So we can just go on 
and live our lives however we 
want because Jesus already 
paid for our sins so we are all 
bound for heaven. 

It's Heaven or Bust 
baby. . .all the way! Well, it's 
not exactly THAT easy, but 
don't we wish it was. 

A lot of us tend to take 
all of that for granted like it is 
really no big deal to our lives. 
Others just plain of ignore the 
whole notion. 

Until you have lived the 
Christian life and have had an 
intimate relationship with Christ 
you can never fully understand it 
all. I was fortunate enough to 
grow up in a Christian home, 
which I took for granted. It 
literally took several years for me 
to really get what it was all about. 

We don't understand a lot 
of things that happen in our lives 
and often ask why, why, why!? I 
know that I do. We say life's not 
fair, which it may not be, but do 
we have any other choice? 

We have to deal with the 
many trials that come along in 
our life and make the best of 
them in order to experience any 
kind of happiness in this life on 

Just as when you are dealt 
a deck of cards in a game, you 
have no other choice than to work 
with what you have unless you 
cheat but does that really get you 

Plus I would rather have 
the satisfaction in knowing that I 
made the best of what I had. This 
is my whole motto to life: make 
the best of it. 

I have a lot of friends who 
are going through a lot of 
things... awful things. 

Some of these include 
rape, death, depression, suicidal 
thoughts and attempts, 
pre-marital pregnancies, cancer 






More to Life than this: 

Having a Purpose 
Driven Life 

and struggles with drugs and 
alcohol. This makes me so sad. 

Of course there are 
consequences to our actions, but 
other things that happen in life can 
not be helped nor stopped. So, 
we have two choices: keep it all 
inside and do nothing or seek help, 
whether it be family, friends or 

However, I believe nothing 
can truly be helped without God. 
No matter what I am going 
through (even though I might not 
be doing everything I need to be 
doing to live Christ-like) I always 
turn to God and give my problems 
up to Him. 

I know some people feel as 
though they can't turn to God 
because they feel like they have 
messed up one too many times. 
But it says in the Bible that if you 
were to sin seven times in a day 
yet repent seven times in a day He 
will forgive you no matter what! 

But of course you have to 
mean it. God knows we aren't 
perfect, we are human and are 
bound to make mistakes. God 
wants you to turn to Him no matter 
what. He loves to reach out and 
help us. 

Some of you may have 
heard that God has his own 
perfect timing. His timing may 
not always go according to ours, 
which frustrates us. However, 
Father knows best! 

In my life I have seen that 
when I am patient and persistent in 
prayer that God will answer my 
prayers one way or another, 
whatever is in our best interest. 

When we obey God and 
His will for our lives, life goes a 
little more smoothly. 

When we go off and do 
our own thing, life gets a little 
rough. Those are the times God 
tries to get our attention to get us 
back on the right path. There are 
many verses in the Bible on 

Most of the time, the 
correlations are good with 
obedience and bad with 
disobedience. For example, in 
the story of Job, Satan took away 
all Job had, his land, his family 
and his health. 

However, because he was 
faithful and obedient to God, 
God delivered him from his 
troubles and restored all that was 
taken away and gave him twice 
as much as he had before. 

On the contrary, Jonah 
was swallowed by a whale for his 
disobedience. We may have 
heard these stories but may not 
have applied them to our lives. I 
would rather live in obedience as 
Job than to endure a big wake up 
call like Jonah. 

When you are faced with 
something you really want, you 
tend to work hard to get it, if it's 
that important to you. 

When you purchase a 
nice car you have to work hard to 
save the money, you can't just go 
out, find one and take it. That's 
just how life goes. 

This is my explanation 
for living for God. Our purpose 
for living is to die. Sound 
strange? It's true. We are 
working for heaven. We can't 
just get it. 

This is only our 
temporary home, in which we are 
to serve God. Our real home is 
in Heaven, which I know will 

be a whole lot better than this. 
But, we have to work for it. I 
don't think people think of it 
like that necessarily. 

Life may be kind of 
hard for some of you out 
there, so the fact there is more 
to life than this should excite 
people! I challenge you. 
Rather than doing things your 
own way because "you only 
live once," to live your life 
with a purpose. 

Things in this life are 
just temporary and not worth 
it. No one knows the number 
of their days. I've lost several 
friends at a young age. 

I want to "go out" 
being satisfied with the things 
I've done in my life. I want to 
live "happily ever after" in 
Heaven, instead of the pain 
and fear of living in Hell for 

I know this might be a 
bit much, but it is only the 
truth that I want to share with 
you. Even if you feel like no 
one cares, I care. 

I might not know you, 
but I've always wanted 
happiness and the best for 
everyone. All you have to do 
now is find it for yourself. 

God cares more than I 
ever could because He created 
us, He is our father and we are 
His children. Go to God, He 
loves you. 

Feel lost? Do you want to find a 
purpose for your life? You don't 
have to look far, the Bible holds all 
of the answers. Also try reading 
"Purpose Driven Life" by Rick

It is Monday night. The current 
time is 12:30 a.m. You are complet- 
ing math homework which is not 
going too well, but you know you 
need the assignment to pass this 
class. Class starts at 9:30 a.m. later 
this day. You do not understand 
what the math instructor said in 
class though you have called every- 
one you can think of. Still nothing. 
"Urggggh" you scream. 

Algebra, trigonometry, physics 
and chemistry are just a few sub- 
jects which do not come easily to 
some people. These are subjects 
which have a tendency to create a 
few headaches once in a while 
throughout the semester.

Butler County Community 
College understands that not every- 
one comprehends what goes on in 
all the different classes. They often 
need outside help. About ten years 
ago, the Math Enrichment Center 
(MEC) was opened at the El Dorado 
campus, located in the 1500 build- 
ing in room 205. Currently, the 
MEC has five math tutors and four 
teachers who volunteer time to help 
students mainly with mathematical 
problems. The MEC has a schedule 
put up every semester of the times 
the tutors are available.

The MEC was first located in the Center for 
Independent Study (CIS) then moved into room 
210 in the 1500 building as the Math Lab before 
being relocated to the room it is currently 
situated in. The reason behind the MEC was to 
have a specific place for students to receive help 
with mathematics. Butler wanted the room to be 
close to math in- 
structors as well as 
math classrooms. 
The Math 
Enrichment Center 
provides free walk- 
in tutoring. Other 
resources available 
for students at 
the MEC are 
videos, accessible 
for check out, and 
some computer 
tutorials to 
supplement help. 

Dawn Jenkins, 
instructor in charge 
of the MEC, says, 
"From an 
instructor's view I 

feel that the Math Enrichment Center is a great 
place to get help if needed. I have seen students 
who struggled with a concept or method gain 
confidence in their abilities after receiving help. 
This confidence then carries over into the class- 
room on assignments, exams, projects etc. Help 
is available to the student willing to seek it." 

The number of students entering the MEC 

has steadily increased over the years, according 
to Bethany Chandler, math instructor. In the fall 
of 2003, Butler opened another Math 
Enrichment Center on the campus in Andover. 
Located in the newly opened 5000 building in 
room 5100, the room serves the same purpose 
of being a guild to students to get help in 

mathematical classes. The 
instructor in charge is 
Donna Gorton. 

Larry Friesen, head 
math instructor, says, 
"Students often find it 
difficult to get help from 
instructors and have an 
easier time studying with 
tutors who are their peers. 

"The Math Enrichment 
Center is always available

athletes who tend to have

Ryan Loucks, math 
tutor, says, 'Tutoring has value beyond mone- 
tary. It gives the individual the confidence to 
interact with others, and to appreciate the chal- 
lenges faced with our education system. In my 
honest opinion it is worthwile being a tutor. It 
has given me stronger aptitude and drive to 
reach my potential and beyond."

The Alpha Phi Alpha Unapt vv 

By Michelle Avis 

The largest and most prestigious honor 
society for two-year colleges, Phi Theta 
Kappa, has existed since 1918 to provide 
scholarship, leadership and fellowship activi- 
ties to those invited to join. 

Here at Butler, Alpha Phi Alpha chapter 
members participate in events such as leader- 
ship conferences, blood drives, benefits and 
even a Fall Festival with Big Brothers Big 
Sisters of Butler County. 

The chapter's service project for December 
is a gift drive for Victory in the Valley, an 
organization that helps cancer patients and 
their families. Drop boxes placed at the 400 
and 5000 buildings in Andover and the 1500 
building in El Dorado from Dec. 1-12 will 
help the group provide holiday gifts for all 
members of the cancer patients' families. 

Advisers Susan Forrest and John 
Jenkinson encourage students to find out more 
about Phi Theta Kappa by attending PTK- 
sponsored events or contacting an adviser or 
PTK officer for more information. Society 
inductions only occur once per semester, so 
prospective members need to apply early. 

According to, to be selected to 
apply, students must: 

> be enrolled in a regionally accredited institu- 
tion offering an associate degree program; 

> have a grade point average of 3.5; and 

> be an American citizen. 

While students must have completed at least 
1 2 credit hours leading to a degree program, 
part-time students may be eligible. 

Some benefits of membership include: 

> Ability to apply for more than $35 million in 
PTK-exclusive transfer scholarships. 

> Eligibility for nomination by the college for 
the All-USA Academic Team competition. 

> Eligibility to apply for several internally 
funded scholarship programs including the 
Leaders of Promise (for the associate's degree) 
and the Guistwhite Scholarship (for 
completion of baccalaureate degree). 

> Automatic nomination for the National 
Dean's List, a publication of America's most 
outstanding college students. 

> Members may submit manuscripts to Nota 
Bene, the Society's honors anthology. 

> All members receive the Golden Key mem- 
bership pin, wallet-size identification card and 
the Certificate of Membership. 

> Members of Phi Theta Kappa may affix the 
Society's Gold Diploma Seal, denoting Society 
membership, to their two-year college diploma 
and have their membership in the international 
honor society noted on their 

transcript, contingent on their college's policy. 

> Members of Phi Theta Kappa may purchase 
the Society's golden monogrammed honors 
stole and tassel to wear at college 
commencement exercises. 

Butler County Community College does 
support PTK members by allowing the stoles 
to be worn at graduation. But aside from the 
scholarships and recognition, PTK provides 
fellowship and service opportunities to its

Great Western Dining 
Services (GWDS) is a company 
which has been contracted by 
Butler to cater events for over ten 
years now. Their services range 
from light snacks for receptions 
to buffets, and also serving a 
three course meal. GWDS is a 
company based in Tipton, Mo. 
but it also has a departmental 
office in Newman. In the early 
years of Great Western Dining 
Services, Butler became the 
second account to sign on and 
now is the biggest contractor in 
its region. 

The preparation process to 
cater for a meal can be compared 
to a theater production which is 
divided into two sections: the 
front of the house and back of 
the house. The process starts at 
the back house which consists of

This is the beginning of the 
cuisine creation. I had the privi-

they catered one of Butler's larg-

Kansas Room. 

From the back of the house to

first were boiled, then cut in half. The interior was scooped out 
to make the filling, then re-baked until they were golden 
brown. Apple caramel pie was made for dessert. 

As the day drew closer to 7 p.m., tables were set out ready 
to be decorated with silverware. This started with the place- 
ment of napkins, salt and pepper shakers, followed by the 
dessert positioned above the fork. One glass of iced tea and 
one glass of water were placed above the knife and spoon. The 
last item in the decorum of the table was the salad, which was 
located in the center. 

As the guests arrived to the function, the staff of the GWDS 
formed an assembly line in the final production of the meal. 
The plated started with Tina Harris, who placed the green 
beans onto the plate which was passed to Chris Heck who set 
the potatoes. Kris Pittman placed the rolls before I set the 
prime beef which Head Chef Andrew Menze had cut. The final 
garnish was placed by Marc Hedges before the plate was 
placed on the table. 

This was a team effort to prepare 140 plates within 30 min- 
utes to be placed on the table. GWDS is always ready to cater 
functions. Just call the office at 316-322-3195.

Hey What About the

performance piece. 

Sophisticated Men? 

You've heard of Sophisticated Ladies but what about the 
sophisticated men? That's right, as of right now there are 
three guys and 16 girls. 

Matt Whiteside is one of the three male performers in the 
Sophisticated Ladies group on campus. 

You might be asking yourself how Whiteside landed at 
Buter. Whiteside was actually recruited by Deanne 
Zogelman, the head choreographer of the Sophisticated 

"Zogelman choreographed my choir group in high school 
and she actually saw me play and asked me if I wanted to 
come to Butler," Whiteside says. 

As well as performing in the choir and the Sophisticated 
Ladies, Whiteside also sings in his church choir. 

Whiteside intends to continue his education at Kansas 
State University with a major in architecture. 

When asked why he chose Butler, Whiteside says, "I was 
able to get a scholarship for something that I enjoy doing." 

Sophisticated Lady Jamie Buster, Madison, sophomore, 
says, "He's a big cuddly teddy bear in a goofball type of 

Whiteside says his talent came from a lot of hard work 
and practice. 

Buster says, "I didn't know he could play the drums and 
sing so well until I actually heard him for myself." 

What is the reaction Whiteside gets when he tells people 
he is part of the Sophisticated Ladies on campus? 

Whiteside says, "They usually have a look of astonish- 
ment on their face." 

While Whiteside does get the occasional looks or ques- 
tions of why he is part of this group, he doesn't allow it to 

bother or keep him from doing the best job he can 
while performing. His head is always in the perform- 
ance and he gives 1 10 percent whenever needed. 

Whiteside says, "I don't know if I see myself going 
anywhere with my music. I want to be an architect 
and that is my main goal right now."

Transferring Trouble 

Butler students grappled 
with the four-year 
schools' rules 

Welcome to Butler County Community College. 
You are an incoming freshman with the intent of 
receiving a bachelor's degree somewhere down the 
line. Do you already know where you're going for that 
bachelor's degree? Some students do, others do not. 

Many Butler students think of Kansas State 
University, University of Kansas, Emporia State 
University or Wichita State University. There are four 
major questions that most transfer students ask: What 
are the basic admissions requirements for me as a 
transfer student, how will my classes at Butler transfer 
up to the four-year university, how much more am I 
going to have to spend to attend and what types of 
transfer scholarships am I eligible for? 

Probably the easiest of those questions to answer 
is the basic admissions policy for the transfer student. 
It is the same with all the universities listed here. If a 
Kansas student transfers to any of these institutions 
with 24+ hours they must have a Grade Point Average 
(GPA) of 2.00 on a 4.00 scale and have all their high- 
er education transcripts submitted to their four-year 
school of choice. 

However, some specific departments at Kansas 
State University and Wichita State University have 
higher minimum required GPA admissions. For exam- 
ple, at Kansas State University, anyone interested in 
the business administration area needs a 2.30 GPA 
and in the engineering department a 2.75 GPA is 
needed. Wichita State University's business depart- 
ment asks for a 2.25 GPA, the general education sec- 
tor calls for a 2.50, while the teacher education 
department requires a 2.75 GPA. 

Not everyone does transfer with 24+ credit hours. 
Those with 23 or lower credit hours will not only have 
to meet the transfer criteria, but also the freshman cri- 
teria. This includes submission of all high school and 
college transcripts, ACT or SAT test scores and meet- 
ing one of the three following criteria: composite

made the trip down to El 

score of 21+ on the ACT or 980 on the SAT, rank in 
the top third of your graduating class, or successful 
completion of pre-college curriculum with 2.00 or 
greater GPA. 

The next easiest question to answer is the one con- 
cerning the cost of attendance at each of these univer- 
sities. There are four major divisions of costs: tuition 
and fees, books and supplies, room and board and 
personal expenses. The last three are subject to varia- 
tion due to the person and the choices they make. 

However, as a transfer student, just as a first-time 
student, there are scholarships available so that not all 
the expenses will have to be paid out of the students' 
pockets. Many of the sole transfer scholarships 
depend on two things: cumulative GPA from all the 
previous college work done and a membership of Phi 
Theta Kappa, international honor society of two-year 
schools. Following is a summary of estimated expens- 
es per semester and scholarships

The most difficult question to answer is how 
Butler's work transfers up to the university of choice. 
There are transfer links within most of these schools' 
websites, which provide a rough estimate of how 
courses transfer, but the best bet is to submit your 
transcripts up to the universities' admissions depart- 
ments for an official analysis.

Ask not what your school can do for you but 
what you can do for your school! O.K., so that's not 
exactly what John Kennedy said, but, in her eight 
years at Butler, there is not much Dr. Jacqueline 
Vietti has not done for the school. 

The idea for this article became more clear when 
I found that some fresh- 
men did not know who 
the president was. 

In the fall of 1995, 
Dr. Jacqueline Vietti 
became Butler County 
Community College's 
president and has contin- 
ued to serve Butler for 
the past eight years. But 
although Vietti has 
served Butler faithfully, 
she does have a life out- 
side of campus walls. 

Dr. Vietti has raised 
five children, ranging in age from 15 to 32, with the 
youngest now in high school. 

While she has had an amazing impact on Butler, 
she has dealt with her fair share of turmoils in her 

At the age of 1 0, Vietti lost her father and then 
lost her mother at the age of 26. While the loss of 
parents can be difficult in itself, Vietti still had 
another obstacle to overcome. 

About 1 2 years ago Dr. Vietti was diagnosed 
with breast cancer. While this was devastating, 
Vietti was not going to let it get the best of her. 

Going through chemo and surgery, she has now 
been cancer free for about 10 years. Vietti now puts 
her time in helping others understand that cancer is 
no longer the death sentence it once was. 

One way Dr. Vietti keeps control is to go in for 
checkups regularly and while Vietti said she would 
never do it herself, she has made a request for her 
contract at Butler. 

Dr. Vietti is evaluated as well as all employees at 

ires Features 

Butler. However, to ensure that she continues with 
her checkups, she has had the administration state in 
her contract that she must continue with her check- 
ups while she is employed at Butler. 

Dr. Vietti is also very active with extracurricular 
activities at Butler. Such organizations as Phi Theta 
Kappa and the Grizzly Ambassadors are 
just some of the extras she devotes her 
time to. 

Dr. Vietti says, "I try to connect 
with students as often as I can." 

Although her path has not come 
easy, Dr. Vietti has always looked at 
the positive instead of the negative. 

Even though life's obstacles were 
challenging enough, Vietti was also 
trying to finish school. 

After receiving her degrees from 
Pittsburg State as well as K-State, 
Vietti still had her doctorate to com- 
plete. In between earning her teaching 
degree and her doctorate, Dr. Vietti decided to take a 
break, which turned out to be an even longer break 
than she planned. 

Vietti says, "My husband told me one day that I 
wasn't going to finish and that made me more deter- 
mined than ever. The best way to get me to do some- 
thing is to tell me I won't." 

Although she suspects it was a tactic to get her 
motivated, to this day her husband still won't admit 
he was helping her. 

Dr. Vietti has struggled to get to this point in her 
life and her advice to anyone who is looking to go to 
school or possibly take a break from school is... 
"Never give up. If you decide to take a break 
that's fine but set a goal for yourself of when you 
will return, otherwise you may never finish what 
you have started. That's the best advice I could give 
to students." 





GettX^^t^know Df*. VCettO 

Answering those tough ques- 
tions - Dr. Vietti ponders a question 
before giving a straightforward answer. 

Getting the Scoop - Shila Young talks to Dr. Vietti in 
her office to try and introduce her better to the students. 
Dr. Vietti's door is always open to students. However, you 
may want to make sure she will be in her office before 
charging in. 

Strike a Pose - Dr. Vietti sits at her desk while 
the magazine staff gets a couple of shots in her 
everyday setting. When you don't catch her run- 
ning all over campus, you will find her in the office 
hard at work.

basketball look before the game. Although 
he can 't play, he s still competitive like the 

For the past few years, Butler County 
Community College's international student 
exchange program has significantly expand- 
ed. Currently, it has one of the largest foreign 
exchange programs in Kansas among com- 
munity colleges. This year, the El Dorado 
campus is home to Liam Wyatt, a sophomore 
from Poole, England. 

Wyatt is like many. He enjoys going out, 
having fun and just living life overall to the 
fullest he possibly can for being thousands of 
miles away from what he would call home. 
He loves to shoot around on the basketball 
court, go out with friends, spend time with 
his "mom," work out in the weight room and 
listen to music. 

When Wyatt was asked, "What do you 
enjoy about America?" he answered in a 
basic way. He explains that he enjoys the 
music, cars, females and basketball. Unlike 
most Kansans, he loves the weather because 
it varies greatly throughout the year. 

"In England, we do not have hurricanes, 
tornadoes or earthquakes. The temperature 
rarely rises above 70 degrees," Wyatt says. 

He seems to live a pretty busy college 
life. He is a resident assistant in the East 
Halls, on the student senate, plays basketball, 

and also finds time to do homework while 
being a full-time student. 

After talking awhile to Wyatt, there were 
numerous differences between England and 
America that were brought to light. Here in 
America, Wyatt mentioned that people are a 
lot more open and greet others, while people 
in England stay to themselves more often. For 
example, a stranger on the street here will say 
"Hello, how are you?" and we would reply "I 
am great, how are you?" However, in 
England, if you were to say that to a total 
stranger, they would look at you as if they did 
not hear a word you said, according to Wyatt. 

"I love the bigger cars here too. You guys 
have SUVs and V8s. Only the really rich peo- 
ple have SUVs in England, and they are very 
rare there, too. We do not have V8s there at 
all. Petrol (gas) is more expensive back home, 
so our cars have much smaller engines.

Never Forgetting His

"Something else that is real- 
ly great is that food expenses 
are much cheaper here than 
what they are in England. The 
academics are much easier here 
than there, too. Over in 
England they drive on the 
opposite side of the road, so it 
was a huge change when I 
came over to America and 
started to drive here. The 
clothes here are much sportier 
and much more into the hip- 
hop style rather than over in 
England. People have a smart 
type of dress such as slacks for 
their casual clothes." 

When questioned if he 
would ever permanently live in 
the United States, and why, he 
says, "Yes I would, but not in 
Kansas, sorry! I stayed in 
Philly for a bit, I think I could 
live there. I'd live here only for 
basketball, or if I met the girl 
of my dreams."

"Basketball really. If it was-

wouldn't be here. I went to 
Philly to play baksetball and 
that's when I decided I wanted 
to study in America. The facili- 
ty in coaching is on a totally 
different level. Basketball is 
the fifth or sixth most popular 
sport in England." 

What does he enjoy about 
Butler? "I like basketball, that 
is the main reason I'm here. I 
like the dorms because you 
have so many friends. 
Everybody knows everybody."

You probably think all cafeteria 
food is the same. The hard, crusty, 
yet gelatinous mystery food they 
serve everywhere. 

Well it's not that bad at Butler's 
cafeteria, but most people haven't 
given it a chance. OK. . .fine by 
me, but you don't have to waste all 
your money and clog your arteries 
with fast food. 

Three years ago, Butler's board 
members decided the students 
could use an alter- 

They wanted 
the students to be 
able to eat cheaply 
and nutritiously 
without the stigma 
of the cafeteria 
food myth. The 
board decided the 
best way to 
accomplish this was to create a 
food shop. 

Well, that's what they did. 
They picked an area near the cafe 
teria and created a menu with a 
variety of foods which would 
appeal to students. 

Next came 
the job of 
staffing the 
new restaurant. 
This duty went 
to Jay Menze, 
who had the 
perfect person 
in mind, Carol 
Powell (affec- 
referred to by 
students as 
"Momma K"). She had started her 
food career in a cafeteria and later 
changed to bakery work. 

She had the experience and 
people skills which would be 
needed for this kind of endeavor. 

Happy Halloween! Mindy (left) and Carol 
(right) dress themselves and Bear Necessities in 
Halloween gear. This is a regular tradition they 
have kept up. The festive food is for the Faculty/ 
Student Appreciation Day. 

"I try to have a 

diverse yet 

affordable menu. 

I'm not going to 

let anyone go 


Powell gladly took the position and 
began putting her ideas into effect. 
One of the first things she did 
was to make a second menu which 
had some smaller, even more 
affordable menu items on it. For 
those days when all you have is 

two or three 
dollars, you can 
still get a tuna 
sandwich, frito 
chili pie or even 
some of 
Powell's home- 
made chicken 
noodle soup. 
Powell doesn't 
accomplish her 
job all week by 
herself. She has an excellent crew 
to help her. Mindy Cleverly, Tina 
Harris and Harris' son Kristopher 
Pittman are there smiling and serv- 
ing food. 

So now everything was ready, 

but what to name it? Considering 
this whole ordeal was for the stu- 
dents, why not let them decide? 

The board held a contest for the 
name which produced many excel- 
lent ideas. The board, after much 
deliberation, decided on the name 
'Bear Necessities,' contributed by 
Diana Reynolds. 

The pun is proudly placed on 
the overhang which was acquired 
and placed last year. 

The school has the right to be 
proud of its alternative food effort. 
Not only does 'Bear Necessities' 
do an excellent job of catering to 
the students, they hire out.

Getting More At EduCare 

Story gn4 Photos By 

Robin Karoaban 

Butler is one of few colleges that has its own day- 
care on campus. The EduCare center is a nationally 
accredited facility that has more to offer than you 
would expect. EduCare doesn't just stop at infants and 
toddlers, it also has its own preschool and kinder- 
garten classes and college classes. 

Sue Sommers is the EduCare Administrator as well 
as the coordinator of the Early Childhood Degree 
Program. Sommers wanted to start this program 
because she believed that people just didn't realize 
how important the first five years of a child's life is. 
Sommers isn't alone in her quest to educate; she is 
supported by a strong staff of highly trained teachers. 
All the teachers act together by helping each other 
strengthen their ways of teaching, which is how 
EduCare accomplished becoming accredited on Oct. 
24, 2001. Since then, the teachers have been striving 
to make their facility even better. 

"The best part of my job is if we don't see what we 
want in the lab, we work together to achieve it," says 

To improve the program, they have also started 
keeping photo documentation of the children along 
with samples of their work. The photo documentation 
consists of pictures of the kids from class activities 
and field trips. A child's progress is recorded by work

samples and documentation of verbal interaction. 

EduCare workers firmly believe in teaching 
diffrent cultures to the children. Introducing children 
to different holidays and traditions at a young age 
provides them with better understanding as they grow. 
To introduce the children into new cultures, the 
instructors include multiculture aspects by incorporat- 
ing them into everyday curriculum. 

EduCare may sound like every other daycare, but 
they have more than seven years of experience under 
their belt. Teachers have learned that keeping social 
development as a priority will leave a lasting impres- 
sion. EduCare 's main goals are to teach children to 
solve their problems, develop social skills, and 
enhance their math, science, language and pre-read- 
ing skills. The staff has also noticed that most of the 
children do not experience separation anxiety. 

"The kids are excited to be here," Sommers says. 

EduCare 's child-focused curriculum has played a 
leading role in the center's success on campus. 

"Our college teaching program and our center are 
totally integrated... we 're in the same area and we 
teach similar methods." 

"With the center being on campus, it allows the 
children to interact with events on campus. For 
example, the kids got to join in practices with the 
Headliners as well as sit in the audience during dress 

But what has really helped EduCare succeed is the 
strong support by both the school and the Board of 

"We are pleased with the support given by the col- 
lege... we are very fortunate to be supported as well as 
we are," Sommers says.

A Little History of Butler Sports Programs 

Pays close attention - Brian eius, 

Detroit, Mich, redshirt freshman, contributes 
to the young Grizzly basketball team. 

Many athletes have come to Butler to play 
sports and get an education. Over the last 20 
years Butler has been known for its strong 
sports program and the number of athletes they 
have sent to the next level. 

A lot of these players come from all over the 
United States to get their academics together 
and go on to play at a Division I school. 

The football program has won three national 
championships and many conference champi- 
onships. They get some of their players from 
the South, where football is huge. 

When you produce players like Rudi 
Johnson, who plays for the Cincinnati Bengals, 
Kwame Lassiter, who plays for San Diego 
Chargers, Willie Blade, Ronald McClendon of 
Ole Miss and Daniel Cobb of Auburn, to name 
just a few, you can see the impact Butler foot- 
ball has all over the country. 

If you look at this year's team, several key players 
are from out of state. Players like David Irons, Lee 
Foliaki, Greg Wilkerson, Brian Murph and Jeremy 
Mincey are talented team members who will leave 
this program and play Division I football. 

" I came to Butler because it has so much success 
as a football program and I wanted to be part of that," 
says Mincey. 

The basketball program also has a lot of talent 
from all over as well. Most of the players that come 
to play for the Grizzlies are from Midwest cities like 
Chicago, Detroit and the Kansas City area. 

Even though the basketball program doesn't have 
any national titles, they are always a contender for a 
conference title. 

Some of the players that came through Butler 
before they went on to play high major basketball or 
professional ball are Lee Nailon, who plays for the 
Atlanta Hawks; Herbert Jones, who played for the 
1992 Cincinnati Bearcats Final Four team; Kasib 
Powell, who played for Bob Knight at Texas Tech; and 
James Peters, who played for the University of 
Nevada - Las Vegas.

Bradford Williams, who was an 
All-American in the shot-put, also 
left Butler with many records. 

Another star athlete was runner 
Butch Reynolds who won the gold 
medal in the 1988 Olympics in the 
400 meters. 

This year's track team is loaded 
with a lot of talent on the women's 
and men's side. Frankie Humphrey, 
freshman from Columbia, Mo., and 
Cyrus Wakaba, Kenya freshman, are 
runners we should look for. 

The baseball program also has its 
share of talent from all over the U.S. 

Over the years they have also won 
many conference and regional cham- 

Since 1984, the baseball program 
has had 22 academic Ail-Americans, 
five All- Americans and 78 
Division I players. 

There have also been 38 players 
who have been drafted by Major 
League teams. 

As you can plainly see, a lot of 
star athletes have come out of 
Butler and have succeeded in their 
athletic careers. 

You will continue to see ath- 
letes from all over the country 
coming to this small town in 
Kansas because this is a place you 
can reach great success.

back John Jordan, Junction City sophomore, stops Independence Pirate Allan 
Patrick in Jayhawk Conference playoff game here. Patrick is listed as a defen- 
sive back but the Pirates were switching players back and forth during the 
game. Jordan helped his team to a 64-6 victory. Nick Buche, freshman from 
Wichita, dressed in a Grizzly outfit for a booth at the annual Chili Cook-off for 
Homecoming. Grizzly wide receiver Sean Hammons, Olathe sophomore, has 
to act as a defender in yet another tense game against Coffeyville, which was 
ranked No. 2 in the nation at that time. Here s the winner of the Spirit Award 
for a Chili Cook-off booth, the First National Bank entry. They were dressed 
like nearsighted referees. Soccer enjoyed a stellar season as they went 16-4 
overall and won the Jayhawk Conference. There were many contributors, 
including defender Robin Heller, Newton freshman (no. 7), here stopping a 
Dodge City opponent in a Butler win. And Medguerline Dorcin, Wichita sopho- 
more, working hard during the team s match against Dodge City. She had two
